“Welcoming, overwhelming, magical, stunning land” – just a few of the ways Jody Halsted of Ireland Family Vacations describes Ireland. In planning my family’s 2016 Ireland vacation, I started following many online blogs and posts about the country.
Above all, Jody’s site really stood out. I had the pleasure of speaking with her about her passion for Ireland. Jody has family heritage in Ireland, but her love for the country came when she took a trip in 2002 by herself. She flew into Shannon Airport and headed south.
“The minute I landed, I felt like I came home,” she says. She has been back numerous times, now traveling with her family, her husband and their two girls, who are 9 and 11. She blogs about her travels on Ireland Family Vacations and is the only blogger solely dedicated to Ireland travel.
